What can I say about brownies? They’re the perfect get-over-the-blues food.

  • 4 oz. unsweetened dark chocolate
  • 3/4 cup butter
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup flour
  • 1 cup coarsely chopped pecans (toast them to bring out the flavor)
  • 1 cup of chocolate chunks

Heat oven at 350°F. Line a 13” X 9” pan with foil, extending over the edges to form handles. Grease the foil.

Microwave the unsweetened chocolate and butter in a large bowl on High for 2 minutes or until the butter is melted. Stir until the chocolate melts all the way.

Stir sugar into the chocolate mixture until well blended. Mix in the eggs and vanilla. Stir in the flour, nuts and chocolate chunks until well blended. Spread in the pan.

Bake 30-35 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the corners comes out with fudgy crumbs. Don’t overbake.

Cool in pan. Lift out by foil handles. Place on a cutting board and cut into squares. Makes 24.

If there are leftovers (ha!), store in a cool, dry place, but don’t refrigerate.
